Both Devika Bhagat & Abhay Deol come with decent credentials.  The screenplay [Manorama Six Feet Under, Aisha, Jab Tak Hai Jaan] and story writer debuts in this film wearing a Director’s hat.

Deol, with a string of fine performances [Socha Na Tha, Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara] plays lead and producer.

The heroine is Deol’s girlfriend so its all nice n’ cosy, raising expectations. Tragically, all that is raised is … a stink!
The story of a boring man and a boring girl, with major problems – one of which is farting & hiccups – is a gross blueprint, to begin with!  A boyfriend who is dumped and behaves like a lazy bum or lunatic; a girlfriend who has delusions of grandeur to rock it big as a singer … YAWN!

The supporting cast of Jayant Kripalani & Rati Agnihotri [the hero’s going-mad parents] and Lilette Dubey, [the leading lady’s boozy mom] are much better, but can’t manage to pull off this disaster.

Everybody always perceived Abhay Deol as a sane & sensible actor with a focused mind and sensibilities that belonged to the world of normal people. Casting girlfriend newbie Preeti Desai as his heroine was ooops no.1 … followed by the dumb plot, stupid incidents & senseless flow!  A fine actor, Abhay Deol should be careful about projects he chooses as hero & producer because otherwise the different Deol will soon become dal-fry in no time!

Cast: Abhay Deol, Preeti Desai, Geetika Tyagi, Rati Agnihotri, Jayant Kriplani, Darshan Jariwala, Lilette Dubey, Anish Trivedi, Yudhishtir, Tahir Bhasin, Preetika Chawla
